The robots you design will change the world! Will you show them the true meaning of love, or conquer Alaska with your robot army?

Choice of Robots is an epic 300,000-word interactive sci-fi novel by Kevin Gold, where your choices control the story. It's entirely text-based—without graphics or sound effects—and fueled by the vast, unstoppable power of your imagination.

  • Build a unique robot character–you choose everything from its shape to what it calls you
  • Instigate or prevent a robotic uprising
  • Teach your robots to love humanity, or disdain it
  • Build an artificial intelligence suitable to take control of the world's governments
  • Start a war against the United States, and win
  • Marry a human or an advanced robot, and start a family

Play out thirty years of your life as a brilliant robot maker, from graduate school near the present day to a future in which your robots have changed everything. Depending on your choices, your robots may be independent or obedient, clumsy or graceful, empathic or cold…and you yourself may live to an old age happily married or alone with only robots to comfort you.

Play as male or female, gay or straight, with nine characters to romance, four alternate climax chapters, and over seventy achievements to unlock.

Choice of Robots reviews and comments

Translated by

As a Fan of Asimov and his Works, I've always had interest in Robots. Especially if they live and are not just any blunt Machines. That's Why I bought the Game. Even if it is completely in English, my Knowledge is sufficient to understand the Content of the Story. Here you are left to how to design your Robot. Every decision affects the Robot and the Environment. As Sheldon Cooper said: "I play this Game with the Powerful Calculator of Humanity, my Imagination: 3" It's just a welcome change to play a Text-Adventure game than to always just have to see any Graphics or nevend Noises. It's like a Book just with your History. At the end you are touched by the Story (or not if you do something wrong ^ ^). Conclusion: Play with one of the best text adventure I've played. Still, you could play it in other Languages except just English. :/

Anyone who likes to be able to tell their own Story and see how their own Decisions influence the whole Course of the Plot will love Choice of Robots. This interactive Novel not only allows the Player to go his own Way through the Plot, but also trains important Skills such as learning from his own Mistakes or thinking in advance. The Playing Time for one Run I would estimate to be about three Hours. To whom the Fact that Choice of Robots is text-based and comes across without any Graphics is sour, it should be said that it pleasantly surprises me how little that bothers you as a Player. It is Precisely this Gap that stimulates the Player's Imagination and motivates him to visually imagine the Plot. The Only thing I really have to criticise about this Game is that it is only available in English; Those who are not powerful in English are not necessarily going to Buy. All in all, However, Choice of Robots proves very impressively that text-based games can still be Fun In this day And age

What shall I say? Somehow I had promised myself more. I have these "adventure books" as a Child (.. " Read "Your own Adventure, so to speak) loved. I had some of those, and so I thought the "Choice" Games here on Steam are similar. ... They are too, but .. I'll come back to that. First of all the good Sides: Pros:-good Writing style-an extensive Story-an interesting background-the Game remembers "Values," so decisions add up to be able to trigger special Events later But The bad Sides Ostaying with me, unfortunately ... I expected much more: Cons:-Boring; History doesn't grab me at all-"empty"; The game book in the meantime seems to me like a scientific Reading, it lacks a "real emotional Depth"-imho-moral Aspect; The game book book wants to be socially critical at times ... Baking, but not in (m) a Computer Game;) Implementation: 8/10 Story (Art): 6/10 Content: 4/10 Total: 6/10 .. Unfortunately, it still cannot recommend it. Tl; dr Anyone who wants to read a moral Sci-Fi story with a little more "technical Aspects" * is well served with this Game-for everyone else: Leave it, don't worth it!
